STEVE HOWE (of the band YES) a rare, Solo show in support of the Ed Renshaw Award – Wednesday 31st October 2018

In December 2011, Ed Renshaw, the son of British clothes designer Margaret Howell, committed suicide following a long bout of depression. Ed was a gifted musician. He was 30.

Despite the mentoring and support he received from the music business, family and friends, Ed suffered from a lack of self-esteem.

Set up in memory of Renshaw by his family and friends in 2012, the Ed Renshaw Award aims to help young musicians (some of whom have mental health issues) in South East London – Ed’s home - to achieve their potential. The...

Ed Renshaw Music Award

In December 2011, Ed Renshaw, the son of British clothes designer Margaret Howell, committed suicide following a long bout of depression.

‘Sad to report the death of guitarist Ed Renshaw, a guitarist able to play in a broad range of contexts from work in Alec Dankworth's Spanish Accents band and with Tony Coe, to classical repertoire and flamenco. His work abroad had taken him to Vienna, working with Peter Herbert and Franz Koglmann, and to the Loelner Philharomnie. Sandy Burnett writes: "he was a supremely talented jazz and classical guitarist. He was young - born in 1981 - and had been suffering from depression’ - London Jazz News

The Dough Rollers

"This kid I like right now, Jack, he's in this band The Dough Rollers. I like this kid's style. He's not trying to knock you over. I like watching him."  Jack White, Rolling Stone.

The Dough Rollers take their name from a song (Dough Roller Blues) officially recorded in the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee in 1930 by celebrated blues singer and guitarist Garfield Akers.
